Ground and balance your energy with the warm and spicy scent of Patchouli. This flowering bushy plant comes from the mint family (Lamiaceae) and is native to the tropical climates of Southeast Asia where it has been cultivated and used for its wide range of medicinal benefits for centuries.
With an alluring and sensuous scent, Patchouli was a valuable commodity in Ancient Egypt. Wildly desired by King Tutankhamun, it has been said he arranged to have 10 gallons of the oil buried with him inside his tomb. In Asia, the first uses for this sweet and earthy plant were as a bug repellent and a treatment for skin irritations such as eczema, dandruff, and acne.
The uses and benefits of Patchouli range from medicinal, emotional, and even spiritual. Claimed to be a popular aphrodisiac, a few drops of oil can increase sexual response and libido. Applied directly to the skin via carrier oil, it has anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe dry, itchy, or acneic skin. When breathed in, not only does it assist in clearing mucus from nasal passages but the adaptogenic and sedative components of this oil relax the mind, improve mood, and relieve stress.
